Boldly Go to the Official Star Trek Website
Funny Garbage recently upgraded the Star Trek website we originally created several years ago, upgrading it to be a modern, responsive, mobile friendly destination. Our first task was to streamline and enhance the content and e-commerce presence. We next implemented a new front end design that scaled appropriate for phones and tablets while retaining the depth and richness of the existing desktop website. Now Trekkies can check the latest news and updates wherever they go!
From fans who loved the original television series to new fans hooked by the latest movie, our mission was to unify Star Trek’s web presence for all the generations of the franchise and provide them with authorized and accurate information. We made sure we were building a site that engaged the Trekkers and gave them the ability to social network by uploading convention photos, sharing memorabilia, displaying fan art, commenting on the message boards, and incorporating fan site webmasters as expert guest bloggers. We migrated data from the old site, including the active message boards, and by using Symfony PHP, created a branded recognizable, yet fresh forum in the new StarTrek.com.
In addition, we helped StarTrek.com update and revitalize their merchandise sales by creating a new online store, and opened the site up to advertisers for the first time. We linked this new content automatically to the merchandise. This connected the wares to the information, specifically targeted the user based on their particular Star Trek interests, and drove traffic to the store from every corner of the site. With a site so clickable, now there is even more earning potential for StarTrek. Funny Garbage is so proud that our enterprise took their “Enterprise” into the future.
